The U.S. Navy's first stealth airplane was the Douglas AD (or A-1) Skyraider.
When I was in the Air Defense Command in the early 1960's, AD's could penetrate the ADIZ without detection easier that any other aircraft type.
They would come in low and relatively slow, so obviously they weren't a threat.
Then the feces would impact the ventilating devise.

Awesome mockup but it looks to me that it looks like Northrop's conceptual plane Switchblade where it has wings that sweep forward and become streamlined wings themselves stowed away for high speed. But then there that Su-34 nose.
Who's the designer, it almost looks flight worthy. Again, awesome mockup.
The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.
